Webbing underneath the arms allowing it to achieve flight-like behavior with each leap, much as a flying squirrel.
Locality of habitat between two places: the Huron River of Michigan in particular, Ypsilanti, and some yet undiscovered arctic summer vacation spot (thought to be the northern coast of Labrador.

Raised eyebrows from biologists at several universities who have been asked to explain by curious gradeschool science teachers.
A creature on a label of a micro-brewed beer with accompanying text touting the legend.
